Shaq talks a good game and Mr. Pringle will have his back... but again, I am not impressed one bit. He was lifeless in Miami. While he may have a few good games to start, he will fade off as his body cannot support his ambitions. Like I said, his mouth is in championship form, but his body is not.
Shaquille O'Neal says he is ready to run with the Phoenix Suns. Really. "I'm going to be looking to get out like Randy Moss and Terrell Owens," he said Tuesday after going through his final workout before making his debut with the Suns on Wednesday night against his old team, the Los Angeles Lakers. You can see live on KCAL9 in HD starting at 5:30.
The Lakers' Phil Jackson, O'Neal's former coach, said Shaq's role would be "taking the ball out of bounds and waiting for the other team to get back."
"He's a jokester, and that's funny, very funny," Shaq said without smiling. "Ha-ha. Very funny."
Suns coach Mike D'Antoni says people will be surprised about how well a motivated O'Neal can move, and playmaker Steve Nash was elated with the trade that brought O'Neal from Miami for Shawn Marion and Marcus Banks.
